Arrow Ghostbusters the Game

How is it, i haven't been able to try it out yet due to work, seeing the girlfriend and well the stores were closed after those two things. Hoping to pick it up and play it a bit tomorrow after work.

Also, i'm on the fence about picking up the 360 version which i know only 1 XBL friend of mine (that i've never gamed with, schoolmate/former co-worker) has it versus the PC version which i know at least 1 of my friends has it.

Can a mod edit this thread into a vote with the 360 and PC versions as choices?

You do know that the pc version is devoid of any multiplayer whatsoever. That may cinche your decision to get the 360 version. I haven't played it but have watched many in-game videos all on the 360 and it looks good, but with most cross platform games the pc users can't really bump up the graphics as we're boxed in by the the consoles graphic limitations and the developers lack of consideration for more powerful pc's. Pesonally I'd go with the pc version as from what I've heard the multiplayer is ok but not really worth much mention and the pc version I hear gets a price cut due to it not having multiplayer. Here check out this Giant's bomb quick look. They touch on the different platforms and their differences.

The PC version is 1/2 the price of the console version ($30). Pretty easy choice imo.

The PC version is supposed to scale to 8 cores/threads (or more?)I believe. I'm going to get it for Behemoth and see just how well it works.

Arinoth, i think the multiplayer does not have a coop mode, which is something that is criticized about the game.

Havnt even looked @ the game but seams to me that any Ghostbuster game should have a coop mode, its freaking GB right, there was 4 of them wasnt there?

You don't play a "GB" you play a rookie that plays alongside the team.
